Grilled Chicken Caprese

AKA the perfect summer grilling dish!

If you’re planning on breaking out the grill this weekend, I highly recommend you make this dish. It is really simple and there is very little clean-up (major plus in my book!). And if you just throw on some veggies with it, you got yourself an entire meal!

I found the recipe on Pinterest, which I pretty much use as my cookbook. You can find the original recipe here.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Heat grill. Salt and pepper each side of chicken and place on hot grill. Grill chicken for about 7 to 9 minutes on each side or until no longer pink and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile heat balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan and bring to a light boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Vinegar will reduce and become thickened. Be careful not to cook it too long or it will be too thick to pour.
  3. Lightly brush sliced tomatoes with olive oil and place directly on the hot grill. Grill for about 1-2 minutes on each side.
  4. Once chicken is cooked leave on the grill and place 1 slice of fresh mozzarella on top. Then add grilled tomato and basil.
  5. Place on serving platter and drizzle with balsamic reduction.

The balsamic reduction really does it for me. I love the stuff. Make this for yourself or your guests and no one will be disappointed!
